Famous quotes containing the word business:

    The word career is a divisive word. It’s a word that divides the normal life from business or professional life.
    Grace Paley (b. 1922)

    It is possible that the telephone has been responsible for more business inefficiency than any other agency except laudanum.... In the old days when you wanted to get in touch with a man you wrote a note, sprinkled it with sand, and gave it to a man on horseback. It probably was delivered within half an hour, depending on how big a lunch the horse had had. But in these busy days of rush-rush-rush, it is sometimes a week before you can catch your man on the telephone.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    Our business being to colonize the country, there was only one way to do it—by spreading over it all the associations and connections of family life.
    Henry Parkes (1815–1896)
